Assumption Seniors Build Hope in Belize
Assumption High School’s Assumption Rocket Immersion Service Experience (ARISE) program provides AHS seniors the opportunity to serve communities on missions as a part of our annual mission week. Mission Week is a designated week in the second semester when classes are suspended and students are involved in a variety of enrichment and service activities.
This year, our team has the incredible opportunity to travel to Belize with Hand in Hand Ministries from February 25th – March 4th. Our team consists of twelve Assumption seniors and two Assumption faculty members. We will be building a two-room wooden home with the aid of Hand in Hand Ministries and the future homeowners themselves. This experience will change a family’s life, and it will change us as well.
The ARISE program’s four cornerstones are community, simple living, prayer, and service – all of which we will focus on our these missions. For some of our students, this is her first time out of the country, while others have traveled abroad for missions before. Either way, every one of us is committed to serving others in the name of our faith. Many of our students have been dreaming about this opportunity since our freshman year! We are so grateful and excited to build community, live simply, pray, and serve others.
While each girl fundraised individually for her own trip, we feel the call to take our work to its highest capability. By raising just $1500 more, we can provide this family a bathroom. That’s right – while we will be able to build our family a two-room house, without these funds, our family will have no bathroom or plumbing in their home. We believe that this is a fundamental part of a home that every family deserves, so we our hoping to raise these extra funds before we leave on February 25th.
We would like to ask you to consider donating to our cause. All the funds through this page will go directly to building the bathroom. With your help, our team can take our impact a step further by providing a bathroom for this family. We appreciate all support and prayers in the upcoming weeks! Thank you!
